Supply Model

HSK has a supply capped at 1 billion units, issued in line with real economic activity. New HSK enters circulation through a Total Rewards Pool, limited by a Reward Value Cap tied to net profits. This cap is set based on a multiple of generated profits, ensuring responsible issuance. HashKey adjusts the cap in response to market conditions and communicates changes to HSK holders regularly. [2]

HSK is distributed to ecosystem users and partners based on an incentive mechanism. There will be no sales or fund-raising activities involving HSK. [3]

HSK's supply model includes a burn mechanism, allowing HashKey to use 20% of net profits from HSK-participating businesses to buy and burn HSK tokens, potentially leading to a deflationary asset model. The main sources of supply growth are the Ecosystem Growth Pool and the Team Pool, with the former divided into different distribution programs. [2]


Ecosystem Growth Pool

Ecosystem Reward Programs

The allocation breakdown is as follows: [2]

  • Business Growth Partnership Reservation Release Incentives: 520 million HSK (52.0%)

  • Genesis VIP Incentives: 78 million HSK (7.8%)

  • Other Contributor’s Rewards: 36 million HSK (3.6%)

  • Early User Incentive Rewards: 16 million HSK (1.6%)

HSK is distributed to reward users contributing to the growth of the HashKey ecosystem. For example, HSK is minted and distributed from the Ecosystem Growth Pool for: [2]

  • Early User Incentive Rewards: Incentivizing early users who sign up and transact on HashKey Exchange.

  • Trading and Liquidity Rewards: Incentivizing users trading and providing liquidity on HashKey Exchange.

  • Other Contributor's Rewards: Rewarding users contributing to business growth.


HSK is allocated for marketing activities aimed at boosting brand awareness, acquiring users, and fostering community growth.

Business Development

HSK is used to incentivize ecosystem growth through partnerships and new projects.

Team Pool

HSK is distributed as rewards to HashKey staff members who contribute to the business's growth.

Reserve Pool

The reserve pool provides additional protection for ecosystem users for contingency purposes.


HashKey employs an offsetting issuance mechanism (burning) to safeguard HSK holders from the dilutionary effects of rewards-based increases in HSK circulating supply. This involves HashKey purchasing an amount of HSK equal to 20% of net profits from specified HashKey platform businesses and permanently burning the acquired HSK from HSK’s supply. Initially, these specified businesses comprise HashKey’s licensed exchange (HashKey Exchange), with further business lines and products to be included in the future. [2]
